Collective Action: Innovative Strategies to Prevent Corruption
Edited by: Mark Pieth
The Basel Institute on Governance is an influential not-for-profit organization with particular competencies in corruption prevention and public governance, corporate governance and compliance, anti-money laundering, as well as anti-corruption law enforcement and the recovery of stolen assets. Based in Basel, Switzerland, and associated with the University of Basel, the Institute's multidisciplinary and international team works with governments, companies, international organizations, and aid agencies towards its mission of tangibly improving the quality of governance globally. Building on more than 20 years of experience in anti-corruption and anti-money laundering standard setting, and on more than a decade of practical work in compliance and Collective Action, the Institute is launching the International Center for Collective Action (ICCA). The overall purpose of the ICCA is to assist companies and other concerned stakeholders in enhancing their ability to prevent corruption, with a particular focus on bribe solicitation. This book - with contributions by scholars from the Basel Institute and around the world - explores the origins of Collective Action in worldwide anti-corruption efforts. The book gives examples of initiatives that have worked, and it acknowledges the challenges to Collective Action. It goes on to identify possible outcomes and discusses methodologies for future initiatives, considering particular techniques for achieving Collective Action, such as monitoring. Finally, the book indicates the next steps for policy makers.
